.m. eastern on the economy. that issue of the economy directly touches on the dysfunction in washington that americans said they hate. they went to bed election night hoping to fix that. speed really matters here. in just seven weeks the bush tax cuts expire, automatic spending cuts agreed to by both parties kick in. we call it the fiscal cliff and even though it's more like the fiscal steep slope it could do some very bad things to the economy. concerns about rolling down it or falling off it or whatever you want to call it have made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not hammering out a deal in time. politicians in both parties, they've been sending out mixed signals ever since the election. on the one hand they're talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in america that isn't burdened by debt. that isn't threatened by a warming planet. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> if there's

petraeus. let's stop it here and bring in suzanne -- suzanne kelly in washington, our intelligence correspondent. suzanne, a lot of ground to cover here. we have this video that has surfaced of paula broadwell, last month, speaking at the university of denver and she's speaking here as david petraeus' biographer about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. let's take a listen. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia an annex had taken a couple prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get the prisoners back. that's still being vetted. >> where did she hear that? did it come from david petraeus and do we know if her claim was true, the cia was holding captives inside a consular annex in benghazi? >> right, ted. this raises serious issues. she clearly said in the video the information she was sharing on libya and the cia holding prisoners there hadn't been vetted. so that means she is sharing something with -- that she heard with a public audience. that's concerning because they have to ask, what is your source? is the
headquarters in atlanta. >> i'm wolf blitzer in washington. this is cnn's special program, special coverage of america's choice 2012. we're bringing you the story behind the numbers. the demographic breakdown of the president's decisive victory and the implications for the republican party moving forward. >> we're also examining the challenges ahead for the president leading a divided nation and dealing with an immediate fiscal problem facing the country. and his victory speech, the president urged all americans to come together. he said what unites susbigger than what divides us. >> i believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. thank you, america. god b
and you'll hear more of the evidence against armstrong. >>> imagine this, if you can can. a washington without gridlock. i'm not talking about the nation's capital but a town in virginia hoping the name sick gets its act together. >> just an hour outside of d.c., people in the small town of washington, virginia, spent months waiting to see what the election would bring their way. and many like cabinet maker peter cramer say they didn't much care about whether the democrats or republicans would win. just as long as the creeping economy starts racing again. >> i'm saying it's both of those people's faults. let's get some people in washington who want to solve the problem and stop the gridlock. >> next door at the gourmet farmers cafe, susan james spent the run up to the election feeling much the same way. >> the economy has changed the way we have conducted business and it's changed decisions we have made. major decision. >> instead of expanding her family-owned business, she kept a close eye on cost, steered clear of debt and watched the electoral process play out. >> what is it that yo
." >>> intriguing new twists and turns in the scandal that's gripping washington, indeed the nation and much of the world. the affair that led general dividend petraeus to resign as director of the central intelligence agency. we're finding out that at least one lawmaker here in washington may have learned of it ahead of the president and there are questions about the investigation that led to petraeus' stunning downfall. brian todd's been working the story for us and getting new information. brian, tell our viewers what's the latest? >> we found out that the house majority leader, republican congressman eric cantor, may have found out almost two weeks before the president did. this and other time lines we're following on the investigation have led to genuine anger over why the white house and other top congressional leaders weren't told sooner. a time line cnn has put together shows the republican house majority leader may have known about former cia director david petraeus' extramarital affair before the president did. that's according to aides to congressman eric cantor who tell us he fou
there could be charges brought against her, but we're told she hired an attorney in washington, and i reached out several times to him today. haven't heard back yet. >> what do we know about the fbi agent that sent kelly shirtless pictures of himself? >> a u.s. official confirms the agent in question did send shirtless photos of himself to kelly, which opens up a host of questions. they also said that happened before this case ever began. we already know this was the agent kelly took her original concerns to when she received the e-mails she felt were threatening. an official we spoke with said this agent never worked the case, but passed on the information to special agents in another department, the cyber unit. it was that department that took up the investigation that eventually led to the affair between broadwell and general petraeus. >> this agent also who has not been identified, suzanne, who allegedly went to this republican member of congress from washington state, dave reichert, he then went to house minority leader, majority leader eric cantor who went to justice department and fbi
sides in israel and gaza and along the border. >>> in washington, our tom foreman takes a closer look at the man power and fire power in the region. >> let's look at how the battlefield is shaping up over in the middle east. here's israel alongside the mediterranean. about the size of new jersey, 75% jewish. the economy is good and unemployment below 7%. gaza very small. only about twice as big as washington, d.c., predominantly palestinian and the economy there is quite bad and unemployment is very high. globalfirepower.com has called israel the tenth most powerful military in the world. let's break that down and see why. they have compulsory military service. that means every young person must go into the military for a while. 176,000 active troops are available and they have about half million that they can call from reserves very quickly. ground sources also very impressive. 3,000 tanks if you count all the artillery pieces and mortar, you get about 12,000 units that can operate on the ground. of course, their air force is formidable about 800 aircraft out there, including some 20
miles away. >>> the resignation of david petraeus as cia director was the talk of the town in washington on the sunday shows as well. lawmakers in both parties say they want to know more about why the fbi investigation into the extramarital affair involving the nation's top spy was kept under wraps. >> how the fbi could have been investigating it this long and yet, you know, general petraeus was involved, director petraeus was involved. so me if it was, the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date so -- it seems this has been going on for several months and yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> democrat dianne feinstein chairs the senate intelligence committee. she says she would like to have been told that an investigation was under way and that she was caught by surprise when she heard the news. >> we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursd
of representatives before leaving to become the head of the woodrow wilson center for scholars here in washington. suzanne kelly, thanks very much. just a while ago the white house released this written statement from president obama. let me read from part of it "by any measure david petraeus has made our nation safer and stronger. today, i accepted his resignation as director of the central intelligence agency and i am completely confidence that the cia will continue to thrive and carry. let's talk a little more about what's going on, the breaking news. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr is standing by. and our chief political analyst gloria borger is standing by. gloria, let me start with you. you just spoke with some people up on the hill. what are they saying? >> i just spoke with diane finestein. she calls this a tragic story for a human being. she says people may start saying he's a scapegoat for benghazi and the controversy in benghazi. she says that is absolutely false. she said i know what the personal story is here
washington correspondent for politico. he joins us now from washington. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so let me first get to -- i'll get to the fiscal cliff but first want to get your reaction to the petraeus story. there are reports this morning that the fbi and the justice department knew about this over the summer, as early as over the summer, and some members of congress are complaining they didn't know about it. >> members of congress always wish they knew what was going on before they get informed of things. that's a typical complaint whenever the administration comes forward with something. i would say this, there's either a situation where the fbi believes there's a potential security breach or there is not. if they believed there was a potential security breach they probably should have informed members of congress so that something could be done about it or gotten petraeus out of his job. what we've heard so far is they didn't believe that there was a potential security breach, which leads to the question of why david petraeus ended up in the position he did. and i think
obama's offer? >> cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is live for us in washington, d.c. what do you make of his comments? >> soledad, look, bill kristol is not an elected official. he doesn't get a vote. but he is a very influential gop voice here in washington. and around the country. and for him to tell republicans it wouldn't kill to them to agree to tax increases for millionaires. it's a big deal. and we heard some similar talk from republicans who do have a vote like senator bob corker. listen to this. >> i think there is a deal, once the yin and yang, we know there has to be revenues. look, i haven't met a wealthy republican or democrat in tennessee that's not willing to contribute more as long as they know we solve the problem. >> and, soledad, now for the but. the but is that sounds conciliatory, and it is but the two sides are still not close on how to cut a deal on any tax increases. for the most part republicans are still opposed to raising tax rates for the wealthiest americans and democrats, led by the president, said this over and over in the campaign, s
that is slightly twice the size of washington, d.c. we used a googp map with james spider marx. >> what kind of close combat are we talking about? >> this is called combat in restricted terrain. what we have in gaza city, there are about 500,000 people who live in this city. you can only imagine the type of combat that has to take place in this very restricted terrain. >> terrain where marx says israeli troops will be exposed to ambush, sniper fire, suicide bombings. if a ground invasion is launched, analysts say it could be eerily similar to a conflict four years after a series of hamas rocket attacks on israeis. in late 2008,u early 2009, isral led a short period of air strikes follow by a long ground invasion of gaza. estimates are up to 1,400 palestinians were killed. many of them were civilians. about a dozen israelis were killed in the operation. then they were able to split up gaza, cut supply lines. this time analysts say hamas could make it tougher. >> they have much better anti-tank capability with the concourse. russian atgm, a better sand capability. >> white says in 2008-2009, h
in washington. >> diplomats in the region and around the world are working hard behind the scenes to stop this from becoming an all-out war. what are you hearing? >> wolf, you mentioned defense secretary panetta traveling in asia. all that way, made the phone call to ehud barak, the israeli defense minister, to talk about the secretary of state hillary clinton firing up the diplomatic phone lines. look at who she's been talking to in the last few days. she's been talking of course to the israelis, the egyptians, the jordanians, the turks, everyone in the region to see what can be done. the state department spokeswoman, victoria nuland today also hitting the message hard, de-escalation. listen to what she had to say. >> in all cases her message has been the same, that we are urging a de-escalation of this conflict. we are urging those countries with influence on hamas and other groups in gaza to use that influence to get a de-escalation. >> wolf, our correspondence as you know across the region, gaza, israel watching this every minute, wolf. >> we're watching it as well. thank you. let's g
. >> so i want to bring in suzanne kelli in washington, and, first of all, tell us a little bit about this video that we're seeing. the fbi so far is determined that security has not been compromised. the agents have interviewed petraeus. what does it say here when you have this woman talking about the cia's investigation into benghazi very publicly? >> well, and you heard for yourself on that piece of video, suzanne. this information hasn't been vetted. is this really something that should appropriately be put out in the public arena in the way that it was? that gets to the very nature of why this relationship was really so messy and so complicated and in the end really inappropriate, but, first of all, i want to say that in temz of what she said about libya and the cia taking prisoners there, this is something that the agency, of course, adamantly denies doing, but the issue really is her extraordinary access to petraeus. when a woman like this who has written a book about him, who, you know, talks openly about the close access she has and relationship with him says something like t
-known among washington social circles. they have been friends with general patreaus and his family for five years. friends describe kelley as an innocent victim about e-mails accuse kelley of flirting with patreaus. how does this impact the careers of the two generals but also implications as well in defense secretary leon panetta has asked that general john allen's nomination to be supreme commander put on hold. for patreaus, panetta asked whether any kags that his affair started when he was still in active duty. >> we obviously are going to watch this closely to determine just exactly you know when that took place. but i think right now my view is, let's see what the investigation turns up and what the congress, these committees are able to determine as to what exactly took place. >> so a friend of general patreaus says the affair starts two months after he took over as cia director and ended about four months ago. four days after the patreaus scandal broke, investigators are trying gather information. what we saw agents searching paula broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, the w
would get a resolution to the debt limit earlier than we did too, so faith in washington doing the right thing is a little bit low, but it does sound like from the conversation you just had with jessica that everybody is taking it quite seriously. >> talk specifically about the tax cuts that are going to expire. how much are most americans probably going to end up paying in increased taxes? >> well, it all depends because the reason this is a fiscal cliff is it's not a plan. ates bunch of stuff that came together at the same time that when it all expires at the end of the year will have this net effect of making people pay more money. so it's hard to tell because president obama wants the tax cuts to expire for everybody but only for the rich, so everybody else gets an extension. the republicans say everybody has to get it, so we're fighting over the 2% highest income earners who will see an increase in their taxes, but basically tax rates will go from a low of 10% to a high of 36% right now to a new system where the lowest would be 15%, and the highest would be 39%, which, by the way, i
in washington, education reform seems to be more likely to get bipartisan cooperation. but the president can do quite a bit using his executive authority to achieve some changes in energy policy on his own. you mentioned a foreign trip that is right. the president and the white house have announced he will be going in about ten days overseas. he will visit cambodia and thailand and myanmar where he will visit with the now freed leader aun san su kyi. >> he had a phone call yesterday with the republican leadership with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private n
? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, this included other information that wasn't exactly what the cia thought might be really going on. i think some members of capitol hill have brought it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today was the senators allowed in to see this video, this closed circuit television video, that included very disturbing scenes of ambassador stevens' last moments. but also, it seemed to clarify, didn't it, exactly what was going on in the buildup to this attack. there was no obvious sign, according to the senators who have come out publicly after this, of any protest. >> yeah. that's what we've been hearing from people who are in those
-- www.vitac.com >>> hello from washington. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for being with us on this monday morning. this morning a sex scandal tarnishing one of the most respected names in washington and raises questions about one of its most secretive agencies. three days after that extramarital affair forced general david petraeus to resign as director of the cia, lawmakers are demanding answers. why didn't the fbi inform them of the investigation? and what does this mean for this week's senate hearing on the tedly attack in libya? barbara starr is at the pentagon. barbara, general petraeus was to be a primary witness in that closed door hearing. what now? >> well, by all accounts he will not appear at this week's hearing. the man who will is mike morrell, his deputy and ci airks, now essentially the acting director of the agency. mr. morrell, a highly respected intelligence professional, has been with the agency for many, many years. would know all the same information that david petraeus knows. but the question on the table, carol, is whether that's going to be political
in town here in washington, in the evenings, 6:30, we want to be at the dinner table with our kids. and i want to be helping with their homework. i think that's sometimes interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. and it really has more to do with just the stage we are in our lives. >> if you're reelected, your girls will be older. they'll probably have their own weekend plans. might not want to hang out with mom and dad. >> it's already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach or what you call back-slapping with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election, people i will have an opportunity maybe to step back and say, you know what, the differences that divide us aren't as important as the common bonds we have as americans. and some of that, i'm sure, will require additional effort on my part. hopefully we'll see more effort on the other side as well. >> though being a family man isn't always an asset in office, it is a priority for the president. >> well, you have to remember, this is someone who gre
that in just a minute. >>> we want to bring you in live now to washington. you see peter king there, the republican. he just exited a hearing that david petraeus was testifying in. of course, surrounding what happened in benghazi, libya. let's listen to congressman king. >> the original talking points prepared by the cia were different from the ones that were finally put out. as far as general petraeus, his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorists involved from the start. my questions had a very different recollection of that, clear impression we were given is that the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was -- rose out of a spontaneous demonstration and it was not a terrorist attack and pointed out the following week when matt olson said it was a terrorist attack and it made headlines because before then, the administration was saying it was not terrorists. it was very cordial, as you will. we all thanked him for his service. i think he has a different impression of the impressions he left on september 14th. >> mr. c
in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of standard procedure, but according to a congressionp aide familiar with the matter, the house and senate intelligence committees weren't told about the investigation until just hours before the director announced his resignation. as for questions over whether the timing of the resignation, coming just before genera
started, and i suspect, suzanne, he will have bipartisan support for that in washington d.c. and he will have a lot of support internationally now that the campaign is over. the big question is whether the iranian government will be willing to come in a serious way to the negotiating table. they have not shown that over the last couple of years. i think the pressure is actually going to be on the iranian government. >> do you think that the economic pressure on iran is coming to a breaking point here, a boiling point, where you will see iran come to the table? >> i think the sanctions are beginning to hit the iranian government very hard. both the e.u., oil embargo, the u.s. central bank sanctions, and just look at the indicators of that. the iranian riel, the -- it has been -- the ranian have been hit hard in their inability to use the world banking system because they've been shut off from that system, and so the sanctions are important because they tell the iranians that they are isolated, that they have very few friends in the world, and that they're essentially operating in a r
, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. >>> let's turn our attention to washington where lawmakers are trying to figure out what the obama administration knew about the deadly attack on bengauze where i. cmn's state of the union host candy crowley is live in washington. candy, good morning. what are lawmakers expecting in this investigation? >> well, you know, what's interesting is this investigation -- and there are many of them going on, not just on capitol hill. you know, there's an outside one as well. has to do with the run-up to what happened in benghazi. was more security asked for by the ambassador himself prior to this horrific event in benghazi? were they aware of any kind of increased security because it was 9/11? then there was the attack itself. what the heck happened? how was it that we lost four americans in that attack that went on for hours and hours? why didn't help come? there's many questions. then there's the aftermath, and that is, wait a second, when did the administration know it was not about a videotape, it was not about a riot outside the bengha
workweek in washington, new twists and turns in the resignation of the cia director david petraeus. top members of congress spoke out on the sunday shows unhappy that they were the last to know about details that were brought to life about his relationship with his biographer paula broadwell. and we hear that the house spokesman eric cantor did know, and his spokesman said he got the information from a whistle-blower. our athena jones has more. >> reporter: as more facts emerge about the circumstances surrounding david petraeus' job, so do questions. >> i have so many questions. >> reporter: like who knew what when about complaint s that paula broadwell sent harassing e-mails to a woman close to petraeus. according to a u.s. official it was that probe that revealed an affair between petraeus and broadwell. james clapper learned of an investigation in a phone call from the fbi on election night. clapper told the white house wednesday according to a senior u.s. intelligence official, but it is unclear when the fbi probe began. >> the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president o
